EPT Monte-Carlo: Erik Seidel Wins €100,000 Super High roller

A big congratulations to Erik Seidel, the winner of the 2015 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller.

The tournament drew 71 entries and Seidel received €2,015,000 (the single biggest cash of his 27-year poker career) for being the last man standing. He's now third on poker's all-time money list - ahead of both Phil Ivey and Daniel Colman.

The 55-year-old American pro was low on chips a large part of the final day but somehow managed to make it to heads-up against Dzmitry Urbanovich, a 19-year-old pro from Poland who made a name for himself at EPT Malta last month by winning four events, including the €25k Special High Roller tournament.

Urbanovich, who bought in at the start of Day 2 and came to the final table with the second smallest stack, had a 3-1 chip lead when the cards were in the air, but Seidel grinded his way to the victory over the course of the four-hour battle.

Winning an EPT high roller is a great achievement when you consider the players he had to beat.I recently saw one of the young Germans being quite rude about the older players butI think Seidel has proved he can keep up over the years.

This just shows that poker is for all ages.
Erik seidel is a hugfe players, one of the top 5 on the all time money list, and still with a great poker game.
For what i saw in the final table, we have to say that he not play to much, and saw other players get out until stay 3 or 4 and them he start to make is game to the head up against the polish player, that for me is have a huge luck to have that amount of chips and eliminate great other players on the table.
But in the end the best win, and Erik Seidel do that Big Smile

For this much money they could be rude with me too - all day every day 4 the rest of my life.

Honestly he would probably be hugely successful too if he had remained toying with the stock market. These people could find gold anywhere.
